When I first heard about the Bally bankruptcy filings, I asked our manager (who left a short time later) if our gym was in trouble and he stated "No way, we just signed a 10 year lease, we're not going anywhere." I was also assured by other staff members that our location was here to stay, although I had my suspicions because the manager wasn't officially replaced and the job was left for two personal trainers to share. I also noticed the 3 cleaning people hadn't been there in some time. I was out of town in June and upon returning, I was shocked to find the place had closed with less than two weeks notice! I immediately called Bally Customer Service to cancel my membership without penalty because I was given no notice of the closing via email or letter, and the representative also had the nerve to expect me to travel 30 miles one way to the next closest facility just to keep my membership! It's a shame to lose this gym. I especially enjoyed the views out the large bay windows while exercising. Maybe Planet Fitness will take over the lease?

As I was entering Bally's on Monday June 15th, I stopped to read the signs on the door. Our lease is up and we are closing June 26th at the Hamden location. Classes stop on June 21st. Members are being referred to the Stratford & Middlebury locations. Talk about throwing your routine into a tail spin. Now we're trying to assess the other gyms in the area to figure out which will fit our needs financially and class wise. Don't sign up at Bally's. The are in bankruptcy proceedings.

I joined Ballys in October. The next month, they fired their cleaning crew and reduced the fitness class schedule by almost 50%. The gym has deteriorated -- dusty in exercise area, unfilled towel dispensers, all-around "not clean." The loss of many of their fitness classes has taken away the gym's best draw. Only join if you can negotiate a planet fitness type rate because that is what they gym has become.

I attend Bally's Total Fitness and I would never go any place else. The machines are state of the art and always clean. They have personal trainers avaible and also offer other classes such as yoga.
